Crimping Your Style

The current theme at Shopping Our Stash is "Don't Crimp My Style," meaning they want you to use a paper crimper which I don't own or cardboard (which I do own) or a few other crimped type choices. Going right for the cardboard, I wanted to make a Fallish-Owlish type something. Kind of tired of ATCs and tags lately so I just decided to make a picture (or two). I couldn't find an owl image I liked which led me to a sheet of October Afternoon chipboard stickers. From a now closed online scrapbook store I received the sheet as a freebie with an order. Not quite my style I never did use any until now. The cat and owl are from that sheet. Maybe I should have used them sooner-- I like the way these turned out.

Both are 6" x 4" and, like I said, just pictures. Thanks to SOS for the idea! Have a good day everybody!


  1. Your post was the first one up when I logged on blogger, for the first time in three weeks, vacation is over, back to the old grind!!

    Creative, as always, Diane!!! Nice!

  2. Fantastic Diane!! Love how the cat and owl pop against the cardboard!
    Thanks for playing along with us at Shopping Our Stash for the "Don't Crimp My Style" challenge!

  3. Cute cards! Love the texture from the cardboard. I used to have a paper crimper but I rarely used it so I finally sold it at a garage sale. Of course, afterward I remembered that I used it to make my own "sour cream containers." Oh well. I know where I can get a new one if I really need it. lol

  4. Well... these turned out too CUTE!
    Love the cardboard! These have a tattered and vintage-y look even with the "not your style" stickers!

  5. I used to use my crimper a lot in my creative days. It's funny how you do something for a while and then forget about it. Cute card

  6. Those are wonderful Diane! I keep forgetting about the wonderful texture you get with cardboard, I have to pull some out of my stash and leave it sitting on my table so I remember to use it!!
